After seeing the retro Prada style 50's pastel car print ablazoned across the Great British high street (Primark, I'm looking at you!) I was unsure whether to buy into a piece of this vehicle inspired action. Although there's been some excellent affordable imitations if the print, and it this trend sums up everything I love about fashion this summer (prints, pastels, 50s etc etc) I was wondering whether it was all a little too much? But, hold that thought. After browsing the amazing Olive boutique (who have some absolute gems FYI) I spotted this design, which drove me slightly crazy (pun definitely intended). With the most adorable contrasting collar, and ladylike peplum detail adding the perfect unique vintage twist, not only does it make a great casual piece, but would also work perfectly with a pencil skirt or cigarette trousers for something a little smarter. I also went a little 'girlie girl' happy on the kitsch and twee accessories in this post, teaming a fun print with some glittery shoes and an amazing cookie ring (that ACTUALLY smells of chocolatey biscuits- seriously) that I'm a tiny bit in love with.

How do you feel about the infamous Prada car print? Have you bought any awesome designer inspired high street pieces this season?

  2. These photo's are so pretty, I love your sunglasses! I haven't actually bought any vehicle patterned clothes (although I've saw so much of it!) but I really love this shirt on you. The fitting is so great, I wouldn't mind this being my first of the designer inspired high street pieces haha!

  6. I bought a car print cropped blouse from River Island in the spring, and I have got a lot of wear out of it! It's just a bit more fun and interesting than your usual girly prints.

    Your top is so lovely, especially with your hair and sunglasses! Retro and very, very sweet :) x

  21. I have to say, I love the print and the peplum. The print is whimsical and definitely not in danger of being tacky, I may like this even more than Prada's print! *gasp* The outfit screams hot summer day!

  22. I have been loving car print lately, although I think it would be a little overboard to own more than a couple of things in this print... I love your top though, I think it must be one of the loveliest car print pieces that I've seen, and it looks lovely on you :)

  25. You look lovely as always! I've seen that print in Zara actually about a couple of weeks ago! It was a black blouse with a car print on and a lovely peter pan collar! :) x

  26. You look lovely! I very nearly bought the car print top in Primark but ended up leaving it as I knew so many other people would be wearing it, this is a lovely variation of the trend- the peplum and the collar make it look a lot more expensive! Want/need that ring in my life too! xx

  27. I personally love the car print, but mainly because it reminds me of spending time with my Grandad in his garage when I was younger x
